RECIPE: Pumpkin Soup from Sunshine Seasons at Epcot

There’s nothing better than warming up a cup of soup on a crisp autumn day (even if those days are few and far between in Central Florida). Available seasonally at Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion at Epcot, this delicious Pumpkin Soup is vegan and gluten-friendly too!

An easy recipe that is sure to impress, this soup makes a great side dish, or serve it with salad or a hearty piece of crusty bread as a main course.

Serves 6-8

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small white onion, diced
1 cup diced butternut squash (skin and seeds removed)
3 cups canned pumpkin (approximately 1½ 15 ounce cans)
1 tablespoon light agave syrup
2 cups water
¼ cup apple juice concentrate
2 teaspoons vegetable bouillon
½ teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
½ teaspoon white pepper
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup coconut milk

  1. Heat olive oil in large pot over medium high heat. Add onion and butternut squash and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and bring just to a boil.
  3. Reduce to medium low heat. Simmer for 30-45 minutes until completely cooked and tender. Stir occasionally.
  4. Transfer soup to a blender and puree until smooth.


  • This sounds delicious!

    We love Sunshine Seasons and try to have lunch there whenever we are in Epcot!

    I think this will be part of our Thanksgiving menu.

    Fingers crossed for cool weather in Texas.

  • A friend and I went to Epcot a few weeks ago to check out the Food and Wine Festival. Unfortunately, due to rain, we were unable to make it to World Showcase and went instead into the Land Pavilion to escape the rain and get a quick bite to eat. I tried this soup at Sunshine Seasons and it is absolutely delicious!!! I didn’t know it was vegan; that makes it even better! They give you the option to have pumpkin seeds sprinkled on the top when you order it- it really is a wonderful soup and great on a rainy day.

    Later that day, I was only able to sample foods from two of the booths at the festival, and this soup was the best food I had at Epcot- kudos!!!

    • Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  • Thanks so much for making this soup without animal products. It’s delicious and I’m glad I can enjoy this different offering at Epcot. You offer many great soups around the World but I’m unable to enjoy them because you usually use chicken stock/broth.
    I’m a Florida resident passholder and visit all of the parks and their restaurants frequently. I would love to enjoy more offerings by the simple removal of chicken bases for vegetable bases.
